Webb Simpson has a seven-stroke Players lead over Danny Lee, and as Garry Smits reports in the Florida Times-Union game story, it's a Webb-inar in great play.
There is also a clever new approach to greens that is working quite nicely (I detail here for Golfweek). There is also some incredible putting: 9.773 strokes gained to lead the field, and a Tim Clark-inspired grip detailed here by GolfChannel.com's Ryan Lavner.
Since no one has ever coughed up a 7-stroke lead in PGA Tour history according to Justin Ray, mom's across the country will undoubtedly ask what they usually want to know on Mother's Day: why is it we are watching this golf?
This is the last time the Players will battle with Mother's Day--and the historic final May Players. Goose bumps! Maybe Dan and Johnny will cry as they sign off and say goodbye to May memories.
Okay, that didn't work.
So try this: Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are -8 and teeing off at 2:05 ET!
And Ian Poulter's raging! All is right with the world.
Happy Mother's Day!
